Try resetting the CMOS. If you have a jumper button to reset, hit that. if you don't then just take out the battery and leave it for about a minute. Then put the battery back (in the same orientation it was in when you took it out of course). If that doesn't work try unplugging and then plugging in your hard drive's SATA cable.
Works fine for me on W7 64-bit. Try deleting the main application .exe and have steam reverify game cache. And yeah, definitely run everything as administrator (if in doubt, also remember to run with Windows XP SP3 compatibility mode, accessible from the properties menu).
" This is getting annoying I've tried: updating drivers updating .NET framework updating DirectX checking game cache integrity running from the file location running as administrator running in compatability mode I don't know what to do it still won't open the launcher and it still gives me the 'Microsoft.DirectX.Direct3D.Manager' error message CAN SOMEONE HELP?! "When all else fails, uninstall/redownload/reinstall.
It sucks, but something might not have downloaded correctly so even though the verifier didn't fix it for whatever reason, maybe re-downloading the whole thing might get it going agian.
" @Rockdalf: It's 8GB though it's just really annoying, surely I'm not the only one to have this error "
" anyone have any help getting Batman running on Windows 7 64bit? "Sorry all I can offer is that I never had problems running the game myself in 7 64bit so it might be something other than the game that's causing your problems.
might sound like a shot in the dark, but sometimes a defrag will fix gaming issues. Dirt 2 crashed my pc twice but after a defrag it was fine. Also when batman came out i played it no problems with 64 bit, i think that was Nvidia 190.xx or 195.xx drivers so maybe try those.
If you suspect physx you can try downloading the pc demo, it does not have physx. (i think its like a 2gb dl)
It works perfectly for me, the steam version anyways. Hopefully you put in the right cd key or it might not work. I think it needs to authenticate it and if it's wrong, it won't work. Then again maybe there was an error on your hardrive and it's showing signs it's deteriorating, or else maybe it's something to do with games for windows live which you can test if you have other games with it. If not, i'm not sure, maybe check the steam forums, they usually try to troubleshoot problems there and look for solutions.
the install shouldn't fail.
and yes you can reinstall it.
try downloading it instead of the websetup
I ran it on Win7 64 bit without a hitch. Bionic Commando Rearmed acted similar to what your going through. After a couple days pulling my hair out it turned out it was a particular video codec (can't remember exactly which one) from the Win7 Shark codec pack.
(You've likely seen these already in your own searches.)
This guy seems convinced it's Securom.
This guy says Realtek audio hates Batman.
Seems AVG antivirus is a possible culprit too.
Hope you get it working, it's a great game.
